Description: Sex workers are often portrayed as lovers of money only, promiscuous without romance, islands distanced from friends and family. But of course the truth is that Dominatrices, hustlers, porn performers and whores have personal lives outside of their jobs; they have families, date, and fall in love. Negotiating a partnership can be complicated for anyone, but working out romantic arrangements is often compounded when one or more of the lovers involved works in a socially stigmatized industry. Maintaining intimacy with family and friends as well as personal autonomy when the world sensationalizes and condemns your business is a challenge all of its own. When the culture says erotic exchange outside of partnership is only appropriate for the single, and never ok if you’re paid for it, what strategies do sex workers, their beloveds, and lovers find to accept, respect, and support each other? How do partners of sex workers cope with confusion and condemnation from outsiders? This panel will ask porn performers, sex workers from different areas of the industry and their partners about negotiating their relationships between love and work, sex on and off-screen, and investigate what friends, family members and the community at large can do to support healthy loving intimacy for those of us whose business is sex.
